My fiancé and I were fortune enough to spend Memorial Day weekend with friends in Portland, Oregon. We had just gotten engaged the weekend prior, so we were excited to celebrate with good food, good drinks and good company.
Portland's food and beverage scene did not disappoint: we had craft beer and schawarma fries at Base Camp Brewing Company, dinner and drinks at the Doug Fir Lounge, coffee at Stumptown Coffee Roasters, ice cream at Salt & Straw, and obligatory doughnuts at Voodoo Doughnut, among others. We also hiked past waterfalls near the Columbia River Gorge, and found a vista point at Pittock Mansion.
If you're a craft beer enthused, leisure loving, nature baby like we are, PDX is sure to jive well with your soul. Where better to toast than in the city where 20-somethings go to retire? Cheers to you, Portland!
